Ours was a typical lower middle class family in a small town called Jabalpur. So my mother took up a teaching job in the same school; or else funding my education would’ve been impossible. Suddenly, I was exposed to a new world of ideas, opportunities. This proved to be a turning point of sorts that changed my outlook towards women and men and most importantly, my relationships with them.”
The Kodai School transfer was more of an eye-opener for Arjun and the timid, quiet, insecure boy in him started opening up to others around him. “This school had no uniforms,” says Arjun, “So the students wore what they wanted. I would turn up in a t-shirt and a pair of shorts.” Didn’t the clothes make class distinctions more apparent amongst students?
